FS Renaissance is a display stencil typeface by the Monotype Studio. A collaboration between lettering artist and designer Craig Black and Creative Type Director Pedro Arilla, the single style font explores the intersection between art and design. With artist and designer working hand in hand, each letter was crafted as a standalone piece of art, while working harmoniously together as a functioning typeface.
Burlingame is a multi-purpose font family that started out as a single typeface with a more specialist purpose: it was originally intended for a game identity. It has found a wider purpose following pioneering investigations by Monotype into the legibility of vehicle displays. The research revealed a set of optimum criteria for dashboard display fonts: large counters and x-heights, simple shapes and a loose spacing of characters.
A search of Monotype’s own library turned up nothing that fitted the bill exactly, so Carl Crossgrove was asked to develop his game font, Burlingame, suited to a wide range of uses, from packaging and publishing to game and motion graphics.
Macklin is inspired by the era when type leapt off the pages of books and onto large-scale posters and advertisements. With a distinct twist on its typographic predecessor, Macklin’s sharp yet elegant forms push the superfamily to a place that’s more suited to contemporary use and modern design.
